I can’t believe it’s already Monday. We had a nice, low key weekend and I’m bummed it’s already over.
Friday night we had our second “friend date”. I was really in the mood to get out of the house that night, so I decided to text the couple from our last date to see if they would be up for hanging out. That may or may not have been after a 15 minute self pep-talk about how texting them would be no big deal. Yup. Super smooth. Luckily for my new, fragile dating ego, they did want to hang out, so we all went out for Mexican food. I thought the food was just ok, but we had a really great time. Second date win!
Other than our dinner the weekend mostly involved us trying to catch up on Downton (we’re soo behind) and me baking an excessive amount of cookies (200+) for my sister in-law’s bridal shower. The shower isn’t until this coming Saturday, but I knew baking wasn’t going to happen during the work week so they’re packed away in the freezer for now. I was too exhausted at the end to take any pictures, but I will on Friday aka frosting day.
On to the workouts. I had a pretty good week, despite having no energy.
Monday: Regular yoga dvd
Tuesday: Winter Shape Up Workout #1. I loved these so much I’m going to work them into my regular routine
Wednesday: I tried Yoga Download for the first time. I was expecting a wider selection of free videos, but was a little disappointed by the lack of beginner options. I tried the Yoga for Weight Loss 20 minute video. The instructor was a little bit new agey for me. I’m not sure I believe putting my neck in a certain position and breathing is activating my thyroid and thus improving my weight loss, but whatever. It had a lot more yoga positions that actually require strength, rather than just stretching, and pretty decent instructions on proper positioning, which is what I was looking for, so I would do it again.
Thursday: Physique 57 Total Body dvd. Normally I’m more of a Pure Barre girl, but I got this dvd to switch it up a little. I really like most if it, but so far I have found the seat portion very awkward. I’m hoping I’m just not used to the positions and it will get better, but we’ll see.
Sunday: 2 mile run through the park. It was 70 and sunny, which was perfect but it also meant that the park was crazy crowded. It felt like the college quad on the first warm spring day, except with WAY more people.
Sidenote: I clearly stunk at taking pictures this weekend. Will attempt to improve that in the future.
